Recipe: Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow CreamRecipes
We made this sweet treat just for you, chocolate-lovers! These cupcakes skip on solid chocolate in favor of cocoa powder, but trust me — they’re doing it in the name of intense chocolate flavor. Cocoa powder joins forces with a bit of coffee to bring you the rich, deep, and intensely flavored chocolate cupcake you crave. And because every good cupcake deserves an equally good frosting, the pillow of vanilla-scented marshmallow buttercream on top is just the right finishing touch.

How To Make a Molten Chocolate Bundt CakeRecipes
When Ella Helfrich of Houston, Texas, won second prize in the Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest in 1966 with her Tunnel of Fudge cake, she made more than just a winning cake — she created both a 1960s phenomenon and a memory that lingers so strongly for a generation of cake bakers and eaters that even though the ingredients she used are long off the market, many bakers to this day tackle her curious recipe. I recently joined those bakers.

Recipe: One-Bowl Caramel Skillet BrownieRecipes
I believe my heart sunk right into this skillet’s fudgy middle even before it was cool enough to cut a square. These are brownies that satisfy like no other; they’re intensely chocolatey, chewy yet still fudgy, and made even more decadent with swirls of gooey caramel sauce and a healthy sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Bake them when you want to make a friend smile, or simply when you discover that pint of vanilla ice cream that got pushed to the back of your freezer.

How to Win at Galentine's

How to Throw a Cheesy Valentine’s Day Party for Your GalentinesKitchen

So far this week we’ve shared the party plan, a recipe for muffin tin apple pies that look just like roses, and flower alternatives for the special day. Want to see how everything came together?

Recipe: Galentine’s Day Pitcher CocktailsRecipes
This Galentine’s Day, celebrate with a pitcher cocktail that’s easy to make, sophisticated, and crowd-pleasing. It’s a little sweet, a little fruity, a little bubbly, and a little bitter, which pretty much sums up my thoughts on what this day is all about. It’s not too boozy, either, so it’ll fit in whether you’re in for a girls’ night or up for a lazy brunch.

How To Make Rosé GummiesRecipes
Take everything you love about your favorite bottle of rosé — that lush, pale pink color; the crisp, refreshing finish; a fruity, just sweet-enough edge — and now imagine it packed into a gummy bear! That collision between the candy we munched on as kids (and probably still do now) and the “it” wine of the moment makes this surprisingly easy-to-make candy even more delightful.

Recipe: Salted Dark Chocolate PopcornRecipes
I speak not as an angry spinster but as a happily married woman when I say: I hate Valentine’s Day. It probably stems from my general dislike of anything overly girly or pink, and my feeling that a sweet gesture of love is much more special on a day when society isn’t pressuring you into doing it. And don’t even get me started on how alienating the holiday is for anyone not in a romantic relationship.

To the uninitiated: Puppy chow is an irresistible, dessert-leaning snack mix with chocolate-coated Chex cereal at its base. It really has everything going for it, with its mix of M&Ms, cinnamon hearts, and white-chocolate coated Chex.
